Obituary for John Brooker Melton

John Brooker Melton, 36, chose to end his life on Thursday, March 29, 2018, surrounded by the beauty of nature in Spring Branch, Texas.

John was born at W.C.Tenery Hospital in Waxahachie, Texas on August 31, 1981. He is the beloved son of Thomas Gene Melton and Sarah Hill Melton. John was raised in Waxahachie, Texas until the age of 12, when his family moved to Huntington Beach, California. He graduated from Huntington Beach High School in the year 2000 and then went on to receive his Associates Degree in Golf Management at the College of the Desert in Palm Dessert, California.

John worked for several companies after graduation including: Meadowlark Golf Club in Huntington Beach, Cefco of McGregor Texas, and Enviropackaging Solutions in Temple, Texas. He became permanently disabled due to his mental challenges in 2014. He lived in Moody, Texas until 2017 when he moved to Bulverde, Texas. He began volunteering at Provisions Food Pantry of Bulverde. He also enjoyed attending Bulverde Baptist Church and became a member in the Bible Study class and Sunday school classes there.

First and foremost, John loved God, his family and his friends. Everyone John met were touched in a special way by his presence and “light”. His smirky smile was always present along with his rye sense of humor. John’s sky blue eyes were captivating and full of love and unconditional acceptance, which he extended to all human beings he met, even strangers. He loved animals since childhood and also loved being out in nature. He was a naturally gifted golfer and enjoyed playing golf and tennis with his beloved Dad, “T”.

John loved discussing and contemplating the meaning of life along with searching the starry nights for UFO’s. He believed in pure simplicity in dress and lifestyle, wanting no frills or fuss. His passion for the hungry people in the world became evident in childhood, as he always prayed for the “people in Africa”. Provisions Food Pantry was his way to help others.

John researched and studied ways to deal with his mental disabilities naturally and homeopathically. He had many challenges, with a mind that would not turn off or give him peace and rest. However, he dealt with these challenges with dignity and strength. He refused all alcohol and drugs and chose sobriety and clean living, along with his faith in God to sustain him for many years.

John battled his mental difficulties for 20 years. During the last two weeks of his life, John became extremely tired and lost hope for a better future for himself. He became disillusioned and yearned for a peace of mind and a different way of life that he could not attain on this earth. John knew that his real home was his “heavenly home”. God called him back to that eternal home.

The ripples of John’s beautiful life will continue to spread for eternity.

John Brooker is survived by his beloved parents, Thomas and Sarah Melton of Bulverde, Texas.

He had 2 brothers and one sister. Beloved brother Daniel Adam Melton and his wife, Chandra of ShenZhen, China. John also leaves behind a beloved sister, Rachel Melton Kirkland from San Antonio, Texas and beloved former brother in law, Ian Kirkland of San Antonio. Beloved brother Eric Shane James and his wife Jenny of Columbus, Georgia..There are 8 beloved nephews and nieces…Noah, Tristan, and Sophia Melton, along with Elijah, Joaquin, and Talia Kirkland, and Sydney and Elle James.

John’s grandparents are William C.(Bill) and Barbara Hill of Waxahachie, Texas and the late Darrell and Lois Melton of Waxahachie. He was blessed with uncles, aunts, and cousins from all over the map. He cherished each and every one of them.

The family asks that memorial contributions be made to Provisions Food Pantry of Bulverde, Texas.
